This is a follow-up to a review I posted earlier about Lindsay and her paralegal Mallory. Since that time, my case has settled. Lindsay was incredible throughout the entire process. Her knowledge of family law is encyclopedic but what makes here stand out in my opinion is her compassion and unwavering commitment to keep her client on track, within the law and on the "high ground". She took every opportunity to help me reduce my costs instead of just doing whatever I wanted and running up fees, and carefully reviewed every document, motion, response and discovery issue I had. She kept me honest and never shirked telling me when I had gone off the reservation. In the end, we avoided a trial and negotiated a settlement that both parties could live with. During the negotiation process she was very clear about the risks inherent with a family law trial and the possibility that I could actually come out with less that what was negotiated. That advice and caution proved spot-on when our agreement was signed and the judge spoke his piece about it.
I spoke of her compassion and that more than anything impressed me. This was a blindside divorce and I went through the 5 stages of grief dealing with it. She never judged me, understood that the Big Bad Sailorman had a heart that could be broken and that he could cry. I am amazed at how she, or any other family law attorney for that matter, can deal with the raw anger and hurt that happens when two people that used to love each other tear each other apart.
I recommend her without reservation to anyone needing competent, knowledgeable, and responsiveness representation in and family matter.
